At the end of a non-jury trial, in how many days the judgment

This answer was rated:

At the end of a non-jury trial, in how many days the judgment is usually filed; on average. This is in south Florida.

TexLawyer :

Good afternoon. I'll be assisting you with your question.

TexLawyer :

Usually it takes less than a week for judgment to be entered by the judge. It can happen as soon as the same day as the verdict is returned.

TexLawyer :

Once the judgment is entered, the clock for you to file a notice of appeal starts ticking.

Customer:

I am reading rule 1.530 Fl civ proc. When is the deadline to file a motion for new trial, or rehearing. This is a non-jury trial.

TexLawyer :

You have 10 days from when the judgment is entered.

TexLawyer :

So, if the judge waits 20 days from the end of trial to enter the judgment, you have 10 days from then, for a total of 30 days. It all depends on when the judgment gets filed.

TexLawyer :

For reference, here is the rule.
